What does that word say? "Recruiter" - it reminds me of Evangelist - someone who is going to get people to join their cause. I remember people saying I spoke like an evangelist, and perhaps I was like a web evangelist for a while. But I never found a bible I could speak from for long, before the pages wore thin and I could see real faces on the other side.

So now I'm a recruiter for DeNA - a mobile phone games company has asked me to serve as someone who will help find good folks to work with. As I write on my near three years at this ngmoco:) DeNA company, I am balancing a genetic legacy of curmudgeonly standards against the fast-paced world of digital talent-seeking.

Hi, I'm Justin Hall and this here is a personal web site I've used to chronicle my time on earth since 1994. The content on the front page is relatively recent; if you search through the archives, you'll find old pieces of Justin. Some folks have indexed my doings on Wikipedia.
